I know this might come as a surprise but, at least, it's very pleasant one for everybody concerned.
After several wonderful years as editor for Romantic Country, the time has come for me to pursue all the many other ventures I have become involved with (more books, more photo shoots for magazines, a line of products "Prairie Pretties" and on going associations with European magazines.) I am definitively no super woman and realized that I had to give something up.
So, the soon to be out issue was my last one and I am so happy to introduce to you MARY FORSELL, Romantic Country new editor. Please, welcome her into your life as you have so generously welcomed me. Think of her as my (younger) sister!! I know you are going to love her style.
Many of you already know the multi talented MARY but here is a little more about her:
Mary is an editor and writer who has written for the magazines Victoria, Mary Engelbreit’s Home Companion, and Bride’s, among others. She is the author of a number of lifestyle books, including Heirloom Herbs, Living the Artful Life, Romantic Weddings, Table Settings: Special Touches for Entertaining, and quite a few others. She lives with her husband and two daughters (plus one terrier, three cats, and several turtles---and, in my book, thats another +) in the scenic Hudson Valley of New York.
I am sure you already have several of her books in your library, but if you are missing a few check these out:
........and here are a few samples of her past articles. As you can clearly see, MARY is perfect for the job..........
So, not to worry:
ROMANTIC COUNTRY lives on.
(....and I will still be around....you don't get rid of me that easily!!!)
I do want to thank each of you for the priceless support you have given me over the years and I look forward to keep hearing from you and to let you know about all the exciting things coming up for me this year. More on that later.
THANK YOU for welcoming MARY and for remaining faithful readers of ROMANTIC COUNTRY.
With much love, always!
